Took it out to see if rotating the tires did any good, it didn't. I'll be taking it in Friday morning.

Oh, it'll get fixed, I have a pretty good dealer, even it takes a little bit. Retired as you know, so have plenty of time. Plus I'll get a nice loaner. Hope it won't be a new Ranger though, that might take me over the top earlier than I really want.

Sorry to hear John, but your relationship with your dealer is like mine, so they will get you taken care of.

Oh ya, things will work out, I'm concerned, but not worried about it. I'm just concerned about it being a safety issue, I know nothing about the EPAs, or what could go wrong.

By any chance have you sprayed the steering lower shaft between the firewall and rack? It has 2 u-joints that sometimes bind. Soak that sucker with WD40 or some sort of silicone spray lube and go do figure 8's in a field somewhere, see if that works.

No, I haven't, certainly worth a try, I'll do that in the morning. It would be great if that was the cure, pretty simple!

Was thinking about this earlier this afternoon as a possible cause. If it is though, it might be noticed during a full stop to stop turn as well.
